OK....

2009- spring semester - never took school serious and began to take it serious. I worked HARD and still only got C's. But while you were not taking it seriously, you would have been on track for an F. When you started taking it seriously, you clawed your way back to a C. From Fail to Pass, by working hard. And you found it exciting.
---I REMEMBER FINDING THIS EXCITING BECAUSE I WAS WORKING MY WAY INTO THE CITY FROM THE SUBURBS (GOING TO SCHOOL AND WORKING IN THE CITY). I ALSO WAS ALWAYS USED TO BEING DISCONNECTED FROM PEOPLE BECAUSE I NEVER PAYED ATTENTION TO ANYTHING EXCEPT MY OWN THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS. THE EXCITEMENT CAME FROM THE CONNECTION TO OTHERS AS I WAS BEGINNING TO DO WHAT THEY DO AND NOT JUST GO THROUGH THE MOTIONS AS A "WONDERER"

2011-2012, I was working fulltime and working hard at my job. I was also taking classes at night twice per week. You didn't like the job. Is it possible you weren't working hard at the job? If you don't like something any amount of effort will seem hard. You probably WAS working hard at school, though.
--- I WAS WOKRING 75-80% OF WHAT I COULD HAVE DONE IN SCHOOL. WORK WAS MISERABLE BECAUSE I WAS TRYING TO HOLD THE JOB DOWN TO BECOME A COP BUT MY INTERVIEWS KEPT BEING PUSHED BACK MORE AND MORE DUE TO MY RECORD. I WAS EVENTUALLY DISQUALIFIED FROM THE JOB (POLICE OFFICER). PART OF MY REASON FOR FAILING IN THE SUBSEQUENT 2 UNIVERSITIES I ATTEMPTED 2 YEARS STRAIGHT AFTER - NO HEART FOR THE DEGREES I WAS GOING FOR AT THAT POINT. STILL HAVENT FOUND A FUTURE CAREER THAT GETS ME GOING AN PAYS WELL AND MAKES ME MOTIVATED.


2014- when I started working at the casino. I was doing everything right and was just constantly trying to improve. Was having a ball. Then things turned south, but you was working hard and was having a ball until that point. It was only when you felt they were taking advantage of you and you stopped working hard that you got bored and lost momentum.
---- I PERSONALLY JUST FELT THE STUFF WAS RIDICULIOUS. I WASNT BEING TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF. IT JUST WASNT THE RIGHT INDUSTRY FOR ME ALTHOUGH IT WAS VERY CLOSE!


2008-2011 - I was in the gym RELIGIOUSLY. Never would miss a workout, never would cut a workout short, ate very healthy...I got to the point where I was "top dog" in my gym. And once "top dog" status had been accomplished, that's when you lost interest.
---- YEA...I LOOK BACK AND REALLY WISH I HAD IT BACK. ITS ANOTHER THING I CANT GET MOTIVATED FOR. AS I WRITE THIS NOW I MISSED ANOTHER DAY IN THE GYM WHEN I HAD PLENTY OF TIME TO GO. I WENT ONCE THIS WEEK AND ITS GONNA BE THURSDAY TOMORROW ALREADY. NOW I HAVE TO GO 4 STRAIGHT DAYS TO MEET MY ROUTINE. NO DOUBT THAT I HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO DO IT....JUST WILL I? NOT TO BE NEGATIVE, BUT ILL GET CAUGHT UP WITH SOMETHING ELSE AND BAG IT 3 OUT THE OF THE 4 DAYS.

2015- beginning of my new class, I was reading and really into the work...studying and doing really well. Then you let your work standards slip and now can't seem to find the interest you had in the beginning. This has to be addressed, of course, but I don't see in this paragraph any indication that you were miserable when you were working hard (at the beginning.) You became miserable when you stopped working hard and started coasting
---- NO I WASNT MISERABLE. BUT IT WAS A PAIN TO HAVE TO READ ALL THOSE CHAPTERS. I REALLY CANT STAND READING. I GET MORE OUT OF SITTING IN CLASS LISTENING OR HANDS ON EXPERIENCE.
